About the Course

***22nd Aug 2022***

Dates for the two-day hybrid course in December are now confirmed as Wed 14th & Thur 15th Dec

Places for the in-person option will be limited to 100 

We have had over 300 registrations of interest in the course since the last full CDC in 2019, so unfortunately there is no way that we are going to be able to accommodate everyone in-person

However, there will also be an online option with access to all the talks and separate break-out groups 

Once ticket prices are confirmed we will email out to everyone who has registered with us and assuming demand for the in-person option exceeds capacity we will do our best to make sure places are allocated fairly & transparently

The one-day virtual course on Friday 29th April is now FULLY BOOKED

We are awaiting confirmation of dates for the two day in person course in December 2022 and once these are available we will confirm ticket prices

I am happy to announce that the Cambridge Dementia Course will be running again in 2022. 

After a two year break owing to Covid, we plan to restart with a one-day virtual course on Friday 29th April 2022, followed by a two-day in person course in December 2022 (dates to be confirmed). The one-day course will mirror the introductory day of the last three-day course in 2019, with the two-day course moving on to the more advanced topics. Delegates can opt to attend one, the other, or both (attending the virtual course is not a pre-requisite for attending in person in December). Along the way we will share our experience of how we have striven to continue providing a clinical service during lockdown, with tips on how we have managed our remote consultations & assessments.

The relaunch of CDC will bring other changes. Jeremy Brown, founder of the course, has now retired from NHS practice and we are currently recording an entirely new set of teaching videos to replace those that have served us so well in previous courses. We look forward to sharing these and other new content with you later in the year.

With best regards

Dr Andrew Graham
Course Director
